'The Witcher Battle Arena' Mobile MOBA Announced By CD Projekt RED- Coming FREE To iOS, Android, Windows Phone [TRAILER]
If The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and The Witcher Adventure Game didn't give you enough Geralt of Rivia, CD Projekt RED has revealed a free multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game called The Witcher Battle Arena. That's not free-to-play, either, this will be an absolutely free title for every mobile device.
CD Projekt has always been a champion of the people and their design decisions on their first mobile game here are simple- ever single in-game item can be unlocked via gameplay. You can purchase things through an in-game store but none of the items will afford you an in-game advantage. They're only available to you to get further in the game, faster.
"In a world full of enter-your-PIN-number-to-win mechanics, what we value above all is well-balanced and honest gameplay," said Tadek Zieliński, Creative Analyst, CD PROJEKT RED. "Battle Arena is all about skill and dedication, and we've spent hundreds of hours planning to make it a paragon of fairness in mobile gaming," Zieliński added.
They have released a teaser trailer (embedded below) but there's no gameplay footage just yet, so check this screen out for hints of what's to come. They are planning on making it a fast and accessible MOBA with lots of characters from the The Witcher universe.
"In the Arena, six heroes battle it out to the death, trying to capture and hold three conquest points in short, intense and action-packed skirmishes. The intuitive system of character progression allows you to create player-tailored character builds and unique item configurations to surprise your friends and stagger your foes. Become legendary characters such as the witcher Letho of Gulet, dwarven adventurer Zoltan Chivay or the mighty sorceress Philippa Eilhart and use their diverse skills to gain the advantage and crush those foolish enough to cross your path."
With mobile devices as powerful as they are and the graphics they offer being so beautiful, we can finally plunge into mobile gaming and deliver our take on free gaming to gamers worldwide," said Adam Badowski, Head of Studio, CD PROJEKT RED.
The Witcher Battle Arena was designed by CD Projekt RED and developed by Fuero Games, and will launch sometime in Q4 2014 on iOS, Android, and Windows. Check the official site for more!
